A great place to stay. The rooms are clean and a good size. The upstairs rooms catch the afternoon breezes and are quiet. The owners are very helpful and obviously take pride in their motel. The pillows were the best I’ve had anywhere.
This isn’t one of those glitzy or glamorous places to stay, but if you need somewhere that is in a convenient location for getting around Townsville, reasonable walking distance to The Strand and restaurants, then this is a great option.

I stayed at the Castle Crest Motel for one night for a business trip and it was fantastic. Denise the manager was so friendly, welcoming and genuine (which can be a rarity these days), and the room, although simple, was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. For the price, this is an excellent motel and extremely good value. Cleanliness for me is paramount, and Castle Crest was spotless. I'd definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor in room 20.

The room was great. It was was clean and comfortable. Having some cooking facilities meant we could save money on food. Beautifully renovated and the shower was amazing!! The staff are very friendly. We will come back

Over two stays we really liked staying here. The rooms are beautifully updated, spacious and spotless with really comfortable beds and bedding. It's a short walk to The Strand (beach) and short drive to the city centre in a good neighbourhood. The car park is also spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything just feels new and well looked after. The internet is reliable and powerful and the shower pressure good too. Our rooms had full sized fridges and one had a kitchenette and cookware that was all clean and worked well.

Finally, Denise is always cheery and ready to please and makes the stay feel even better (and phone her directly for the best price).

While the motel is in Rose st the complex backs onto Hugh street, a main arterial so there's a little road noise. Weirdly, this is only a concern in the southern side rooms as those on the north side (8 and above) sit a little lower and the noise seems to go over them, so we found our stay on that side to be lovely and quiet.

If you're not noise sensitive either side will be fine and I recommend staying here for a comfortable, well priced motel stay in Townsville.

Room Tip: Our experience was that north side rooms were quieter, numbers 8 and above.

The room was clean and comfortable. Denise was the drawcard - she made us feel like we were long lost family and couldn't do enough to make us feel 'at home'. We stayed at this motel more than 20 years ago and enjoyed our time then. This time we loved our time in Townsville and staying at Castle Crest was such a bonus. Thankyou.
